Will’s Wisdom

Feeling in the mood for some lighthearted wit and wisdom to kick off this week, so when the name Will Rogers popped into my head, I decided to go with it:

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today”

“Why don’t they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as well as prohibition did, in five years we will have the smartest people on earth.”

“When I first started out to write and misspelled a few words, people said I was plain ignorant. But when I got all the words wrong, they declared I was a humorist.”

“It’s great to be great, but it’s greater to be human.”

“There is nothing as easy as denouncing … It don’t take much to see that something is wrong but it does take some eyesight to see what will put it right again.”

“A fanatic is always the fellow that is on the opposite side.”

“Everything is changing in America. People are taking the comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.”

“I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”

“I am going to jump out some day and be indefinite enough about everything that they will call me a politician, then run on a platform of question marks, and be elected unanimously.”

“There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.”

“Everybody is ignorant only on different subjects.”

“This would be a great world to dance in if we didn’t have to pay the fiddler.”

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

“Always drink upstream from the herd.”

Will surely had a way with words! And now, amused and emboldened, let’s all write on!
